Stuff I Like: New Canvas by Palette

Welcome to another Sunday (or Monday) edition of “Stuff I Like”.  You can find all the previous editions {here}.  Today I want to talk about New Canvas ink by Palette.  It is the best white ink pad I have found to date.  But first, the disclaimer:

**These are not products that I was asked to endorse in any way. While they might be things that are carried by companies I do design work for – they are just things that I love and want to share the benefits of with all of you. So please rest assured that I am absolutely honestly in love with these products. I do not rave about anything I do not use every day myself, ok?**

New Canvas by Palette 

Ok, this is by far the best white ink I have found.  The Palette inks are a hybrid ink made by Stewart Superior.  You can read about their capabilities {here}.   First I’ll show you a sample of all the white inks I have – I think it speaks for itself!


supplies: riding hood red cardstock; inks left to right: Colorbox Chalk Alabaster, VersaMagic Cloud White, Palette New Canvas, Stampin’ Up! Craft White, and Stazon Opaque White. 

So that pretty much sums it up, huh?  I love that it stamps the brightest white of any of my inks.  The Stazon was the closest, but it takes awhile to dry.  Palette dries pretty quickly – and it gets brighter white as it dries.  The only drawback is that it is a little light when you first stamp it.  But as it dries, you can see it getting whiter and whiter.   I love that it even shows up on light cardstock colors.  Here are a few links to New Canvas on various cardstocks: Blue BayouBerry Sorbet, and  Cool Caribbean.

Where to get it:

I got mine at Papertrey Ink.

You can also get it at several other online stores: Ellen Hutson, All That Scraps, and Eclectic Paperie.

I also highly recommend you get the reinker – I like to keep mine well-inked for the best white coverage!  Most of the listed stores also carry the reinkers.  I got mine at All That Scraps

  • You know, I was wondering about that color. That clinches it. Look how much POWER you wield. And you wield is wisely. ha ha

  • That’s funny…I was just wondering about this ink today! Thanks for your great reviews. I recently ordered from clear bags and your review helped a lot…everything was just as you described!

  • Thanx for the side-by-side comparison, Emily! I have a few of the inks pictured and while I FIGURED the StazOn OPAQUE White was supposed to be opaque, had hoped for a solid white when stamping on darker color cardstock with one of the others!

  • Thanks for this review. It was most helpful, as I was just about to order SU’s craft white & refill. I went right to Papertrey (have ordered their paper) and ordered. In the comments section of the order, I gave you the respect you richly deserve. Glad you’re enjoying the Olympics too. Young Mr. Phelps is every mother’s dream, huh?

    I agree. I’ve wondered about Canvas and now know! Thanks, and it’s now on my “wish list.” You’re the best! I’ve been eyeing your beautiful creations using the grid set, which I have. Now I have to use it. 🙂

  • I love that you did a picture shot of the different stamped whites! I have been searching for a good Bright white. Glad I came upon your blog. Now I know what to use my Christmas cash on.
